Pattern Description: Tunic

Pattern Sizing:8,10,12. I cut a 10 but I should have cut an 8 although I still would have had to take it in.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?It looks more close-fitting on the envelope. It's really a very large fit.

Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I like how easy it was

Fabric Used:A very fine, loose woven linen.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made I tried to slim it down by taking in the back and front seams but now that I've seen the pictures, I'm going to take in the side and sleeve seams too. It still looks large to me. I look like Maude. (Anyone remember Maude?)

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I doubt I'll sew it again because it's such a distinctive pattern but I would recommend it as long as you go down at least 1 size, maybe 2.

Conclusion: I wish I'd made a muslin first! (Oh, the times I've said that! You'd think I'd learn!)

Really nice tunic! Thanks for the heads up about the sizing. I've had this pattern in the stash for a while and I'll be sure to size down now.

You don't look a bit like Maude! I like the way this turned out.

I think it looks sophisticated and very well made. Your button loops and buttons are wonderful and you look nothing whatsoever like a Golden Girl! I'm working on a project right now using remarkably similar fabric!

I really like this style and it looks so good on you. No, you don't look like Maude ;-).

Elegant cut, well made, pleasing fabric. You look lovely, yes it could be more form fitting, but Maude, no.

Just lovely. The seaming on this pattern is elegant, and you have chosen just the right fabric and color to show off the styling superbly.

Thanks for reviewing this pattern. I had looked this one up a few months ago and didn't see a review, I have made a muslin, and it dose run big, already recut to size smaller. It looks great on you, and I don't think you look like Maude. I did love her though!
